SEATTLE (AP) -Tyrone Willingham is out as coach at Washington, effective at the end of the season.
Two days after the Huskies fell to 0-7, athletic director Scott Woodward said Willingham will step down at the end of the year. When asked Monday if this was his decision, Willingham said flatly, ``no.''
Willingham, appearing at his weekly news conference, added that he never considered resigning.
``No, it's just not in my makeup,'' he said.
The decision comes after Saturday's 33-7 loss to Notre Dame, and after eight days of discussions with Woodward. Willingham coached Notre Dame until he was fired in 2004.
``We didn't win enough football games. That's it,'' Willingham said. ``Hopefully we've done all the other things right (and) it's a good strong program for someone to jump into and do things.''
Monday's announcement ends speculation and allows the team to focus on its final games.
Willingham has been under fire for being unable to turn around the Washington program. He is 11-32 overall in his four seasons. Washington currently has a nine-game losing streak.
